2023 Chevrolet Traverse: Engine & Tow-Friendly Features 

You can find the 2023 Chevy Traverse in six trim levels: LS, LT Cloth, LT Leather, RS, Premier, and High Country. All of the trim levels come equipped with a 3.6L V6 engine that generates 310 hp and 266 lb-ft of torque. The engine is paired with a 9-speed automatic transmission that allows you to shift smoothly on Westminster roads. The Chevy Traverse also includes these features for easier towing: 

  • Tow/Haul Mode: The Driver Mode Selector dial features a Tow/Haul mode that automatically adjusts the transmission shift points. This makes towing easier for you. When you accelerate, the transmission will remain in a lower gear for a longer period of time to deliver more torque. When traveling downhill, the transmission will downshift so you can retain your speed without relying as much on the brakes. 
  • Available Hitch Guidance: When you’re reversing, this feature displays guidance lines on the live feed from the rearview camera. This makes it easier to line up the hitch and trailer. 
  • Available Hitch Guidance with Hitch View: Coupled with the guidance lines, Hitch View provides a close-up look at the trailer hitch when you’re backing up. When you’re on the road, you can also see the trailer connection point via the rearview camera, so you can make sure everything is order while you travel.
